I’d like to try that toasted drink but I’m not big on coffee flavor. If I get it without the espresso will it not taste like coffee or will the mocha sauce still have a strong coffee flavor? Cranberry sugar sounds neat too!
Mocha sauce is just chocolate. Without the espresso, it’d be a toasted white hot chocolate. No coffee taste at all. Might be really sweet though! You might try like a grande with only 1 shot–it’ll balance out the sweetness a bit but you really won’t taste the coffee.
Thanks I’ll give that a shot!
I tried it yesterday (the toasted mocha) and was disappointed. The first few sips were ok, but it got very heavy (for lack of a better word) really quickly. It also has a nutty taste that I didn’t like and couldn’t figure out, though that might appeal to those who like that. All in all, five out of ten with the only thing saving it is the novelty of the cranberry sugar (which didn’t actually add any flavor, but it added a uniqueness akin to Unicorn farts 😀
